Pinup Playboy cover girl and centerfold Pamela Anderson is filing for divorce for a second time from her poker-playing husband Rick Salomon.

Rick is here this week playing in the World Series of Poker Main Event at the Rio, and he won $2.8 million in finishing fourth last week in Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte’s Big One for One Drop charity poker tournament after buying in last minute for a cool $1 million.

Rick gained notoriety for releasing a sex tape with then-girlfriend Paris Hilton. Pamela, who remarried Rick this year after their first marriage in 2007-08, announced Tuesday that they have separated and that she’s filing for divorce for a second time.

That explains why she wasn’t at his side when he made the Final Nine at the Big One for One Drop. The blonde bombshell is known for her stints on “Baywatch,” “Home Improvement” and “Dancing With the Stars,” and she headlined on the Strip as a magician’s assistant.
